Losing a loved one can cause all sorts of problems, emotional, financial, you name it. Some people just don't handle it at all well, particularly if they're also trying to work a scam to keep the money coming in. http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/weird/Man-Poses-as-Dead-Mom-to-Collect-Benefits.html Seems the man morphed into Mom after six years. Became her, not just for money, but apparently in spirit as well. Do you think he was probably a bit messed up already? What do you think an appropriate punishment for him would be? Assuming he has gone a bit loony tunes after his venture into femininity. Do you think he'll be capable of restitution? Sounds to me like his own disability designation is warranted, don't you think?

Hey jerz! What a creepy and scary story! At least they finally caught the guy! What a sicko! He sure did get away with it for a pretty long time!~ He had been at it since 2003 and that is a long time to be impersonating his mom and getting away with it! And now he has alot of time to think about while he is serving his time in prison! And he has plenty of the States money to pay back! Why did he really think that he could get away with such a sick ruse? I will never understand how people come up with these get rich schemes! They never work! At least not forever!

sounds like he already had some issues going on. chances are they'll consign him to some kind of evaluation and possible hospitalization for awhile.i'm not sure he'll have to pay it back in the long run if they declare him insane.
